Old nursery rhyme
Posted by Lesley on January 02, 1998 at 22:04:53:
This is casual question and I don't want to send anyone into fits of research over this. However, is anyone familiar with this nursery rhyme that is one of mom's favorites?
"To bed, to bed," said Sleepy Head
"Tarry awhile," said Slow
"Put on the pan," said Greedy Nan,
"We'll sup before we go!"
The reason I am posting it here is because it uses the word "sup" which was the last meal eaten before bedtime in the regency era.
